    What's the difference between using a wide aperture and a narrow aperture when taking macro photos?

    It applies for all photos, not just macro. Read the links that were kindly provided to you.

    Yep. I know. I'm referring specifically only to macros, hence the question.

    if you've read then you've would know that it's because of depth of.....something that causes the background to be....

    and. and..

    ya I know it refers to the depth of field and what causes the background to be blurred/sharp, green/black

    To be clearer, could I say it like, why shoot in f8, why shoot in f16 w/flash included. Shutter speed varying though. (in the same scenario.)

    DOF limits how much can be in focus. imagine a tiny bug. how thin, at your current focal length plus aperture value of f8 is your DOF?

    do you think your bug can be captured entirely?

    so when you increase the DOF, shutter speed is not as fast. so to counter, higher ISO is used. but higher ISO also means...grainier images.

    so there's no need to use a high ISO, when fast shutter speed can be kept if the shooter's using a flash..

    then comes macro flash techniques... LOL that, you can ask the masters of macro.

    Dof , exposure and lighting are 3 separate issues. You are taking photography as a single faucet. It involves many aspects. A quick answer to your last question is that f16 has more Dof, adjustment of shutter speed would vary to meet optimal exposure. Flash or not, this is to influence the lighting, add some shadows for depth, bring out the subject. They are 3 separate issues and you should view them as such.

    Hey guys, I'm planning to buy a set of lens, mainly for birding, sports and wildlife photography. I've zeroed in on a few lens, hope the pros here can give their comments which is better. I'm using a 1.6 crop factor btw.

    1. Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM
    2. Tamron SP 70-300mm F4-5.6 Di VC USD
    3. Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM
    4. Sigma APO 150-500mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM


    Thanks.
